In the field of pharmaceuticals, gelatin is never “one-size-fits-all.” Because of this, we offer a variety of pharmaceutical-grade gelatins for the industry due to its unique film-forming capabilities and unique thermoreversible properties. Gelatin is a key ingredient in the production of both soft and hard-shell gelatin capsules. It may also be used as a binder in tablet formulations, and as a coating to ease swallowing or mask unpleasant tastes. Gelatin is also well suited for encapsulation of bath oils, manufacture of suppositories, and in topical lotions and creams, making it an important contributor to how we look and feel every day.
We are excited to offer new CapsiGuard™ DRG pharmaceutical grade gelatins, specifically designed for superior soft-gel dissolution. These highly specialized products are available from bovine or porcine sources, and work to inhibit cross-linking, and encourage rapid dissolution upon ingestion. Call us today to learn more about these new offerings, and how CapsiGuard™ DRG can extend the shelf life of your soft capsules!
